Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 12 oz chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam
  • Strawberries for topping
  • 4 balloons


  • Blow up balloons until they are between 5 and 8 inches in diameter. Spray with cooking spray. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place chocolate chips in microwave-safe bowl, warming 30 seconds at a time and stirring in between each interval. When chocolate is smooth, stop heating.
  • Allow the chocolate to cool for about 5 minutes, until no longer hot to the touch.
  • Hold a balloon by the knot and dip into bowl of melted chocolate. For deeper bowls, submerge more of the balloon. Tilt to spread excess chocolate and let drippings run off.
  • Place a spoonful of melted chocolate onto parchment paper to form base for the bowl. Set chocolate-dipped balloon directly onto spoonful. Repeat for remaining balloons.
  • Rest in a cool, dry place for 30 minutes.
  • Gently peel chocolate bowl from parchment paper and pop balloon gently. Remove balloon from the bowl.
  • To make the mousse, combine heavy whipping cream and jam in bowl. Using stand mixer or hand mixer, whip until stiff peaks form.
  • Fill each bowl with strawberry mousse, and top with strawberries.
